I put together the centre square of the third practical assignment, and it went together brilliantly - all the points matched beautifully in the centre on the first go....problem is the square ended up too small.... so today did another one, size is right but I had to unpick about a dozen times before the points all met! Can't show photos of finished pieces until the assignments have been submitted.
These are photos of the wrong-sized one in progress, and I love how the pieces spin in the middle on the reverse!
This is the wall yesterday morning:
We have lived in our house for 33 years and every year I promise myself that I will take photos of the tree in the front garden as we head into autumn. It is still green, engulfed with a Virginia creeper (which I cut back to the ground almost every year), but within a few weeks both the creeper and the tree will turn into glorious oranges before the leaves drop. I will post a couple of pictures a week to show the changes. I have no idea what tree it is! This photo was taken in the morning with the bright sun on the the foliage across the road. I really like this tree, so when we had the front wall built about 25 years ago, it was built to curve behind the tree! Underneath is a lavender bush and in the curve some shade loving plants. Just to the right is a hibiscus, which needs shaping.
